The Division 2 PS4 PlayStation 4

Unsurprisingly, Ubisoft's shared world shooter The Division 2 has stormed to number one for its debut in the UK physical chart. This echoes the early success of the game's predecessor, although according to GamesIndustry, the sequel sold only a fifth of what the original game managed in its first week. This is speaking purely of boxed copies, of course -- digital sales could be a whole other story.

Devil May Cry 5 got off to a great start last week, but slips down to sixth place this time around. Far Cry: New Dawn also moves down into number eight, while top 10 mainstays like Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA V, and FIFA 19 remain strong in second, third, and fourth respectively. It will be interesting to see where Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the latest From Software title, will debut after it launches this Friday.
